Another which P67 thread.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
UPDATE: I went with the PRO because it's super cheap on amazon.

So I'm looking at these:
http://tewt.me/q7tq8

It seems like I couldn't go wrong with any one of them.

Plans:
i5-2500k, 2x4GB ddr3,
I don't have the urge to push 5Ghz.


Just sold my 775 stuff and my paypal balance is burning my 'pocket'

And I'm still going over http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...therboard.html
but tough to make a decision still.

And I'm trying to keep CPU/RAM/Mobo under $500. Less is better of course, because then I can add an SSD more readily.

p8p7 pro IMO, and I hear good things about the asrock. The sabertooth is a solid mobo, but honestly that tuf armor is mostly a gimmick (I only got it because it was the cheapest p67 mobo they had in stock with crossfire, would have gone with the pro if they had it)

Between the EVO and PRO,
is it mainly,

EVO has 1 more GbE, some heatpiping over the PRO?
EVO has USB3 header on board. (don't think I care, really)
Are they otherwise equal?

I know Newegg doesn't list things like better or worse VRM.

As far as I know the only difference between the Evo and Pro is the dual lan, extra heatsink/heatpipe and onboard power/reset switches

The Pro also has the USB header on the board for front panel USB 3.0 or the included USB 3.0 PCI thingie.

If you want best value, I think the AsRock Extreme4 is the one to get. It has all the bells and whistles that you would want at the lowest price point. As an added bonus, it comes with a usb 3.0 adapter which you can either plug into your front and have it double as an SSD mounting point, or use normally in the back. I think only the Asus P8P67 Deluxe offers that, and it is much more than $160. P8P67 Pro has the rear bracket, Deluxe has the front mount for floppy bay.

If you are hesitant to buy AsRock for whatever reason, then go with the P8P67 Pro from Asus. There are tons of people who have this board as well as an entire thread dedicated to bios updates tweaks and so on here on OCN. This will definitely make troubleshooting a lot easier should anything happen.
